If I won a fortune

If I won a fortune

If I won myself a fortune
I know what I would do
I’m not the type who wants lot
No wealth I would accrue
But me I like to make folk happy
And I really love to see
The smile when someone gets a gift
That’s gave to them by me.

I get my pension, that’s enough
I do not wish for wealth
As long as I have food each day
And too I have my health
Then I’m as happy as a squirrel
That’s running up a tree
I just want to live my life
All loose and fancy free.

So if I won myself a fortune
Then I would look around
And seek out people down on luck
And when these folk I found
I’d give to each a hefty sum
And fill them full of joy
For I would like with all my heart
All sadness to destroy.

    Hi Peter, being the man you are I knew exactly what you would do If you won a fortune. I had a rough Idea of what you would do before I read the piece and I was right. My friend, If there were more people like you In this world It would be a far better place. Another fine write from your Pen Peter, It just flows jauntily along from start to finish. A feel good poem Peter as all the writes I have read of yours are so far. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE. Enjoyed.

    Hi Michael. I think that in this world there are givers and takers and I was born a giver. I don't think we have much say in what we are. I think that being generous makes for a happy person. I don't think I have ever seen a really happy rich man. As always, I thank you for your very kind comments, my friend....Peter

    Nobody got all six numbers again. The annuity prize is now over 400 million. I got two white ball numbers, but I need at least three to win anything. Nice write about "what if?"
